@Johnson, you obviously don’t understand why Trump happened, or why Brexit is here. Neo-liberalism has caused havoc and people have had enough. Regionalism is the way. Not globalism.

Posted in: Poll watchers emerge as a flashpoint in battle over ballots See in context

The incredible thing is that -- for example -- Wisconsin and Pennsylvania GOP legislators ordered officials not to count postal votes before election day. So, GOP legislators said the votes mustn't be counted before the election. And then the president says they mustn't be counted after the election. As usual they rely on their supporters not to grasp this fact and to fight for it.

The count goes on. Why? Voters decide elections, NOT candidates. The Senate is now OPEN for the take! NEVER count your chickens before they roost. Count every legal vote.

Push them further Sacha. Cut right through their sensibilities and expose their prejudices. Top draw. Rudy is rude and needs talking to by the police. That was a long, “shirt tuck in”. HE is disgusting.

What vaccine???? The one in the future (maybe), that has been created, trialed and... well, you get the picture. There is NO long term effective vaccine against ANY corona virus.

Posted in: Strong typhoon sweeps over Japan's southernmost islands See in context

Typhoon 9 is a serious and dangerous category 4 typhoon.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_Pacific_typhoon_season#Current_storm_information

It passed by the main island with winds of up to 54m/s, they are extremely dangerous winds and they are still blowing hard. The majority of homes in Okinawa are made from RCB or concrete blocks. Traditional homes are very low and have stone walls around them, however, over the last decade or so there are certainly more wooden homes being built. A really bad idea, no matter how “advanced” the build is. You’re opening yourself and others up to disaster. The climate “loves” wood here, and two storey -- or more! -- wooden homes -- with eaves!! -- will be damaged or totally destroyed in Cat 3 and above typhoons. That debris then becomes airborne and then causes mayhem all over the place.

Posted in: Japan to lift virus ban on re-entry of some foreign residents from Aug 5 See in context

I don’t understand why any of the above posts are championing this “change", it is still extremely discriminatory of those who live and work here, pay taxes, have families but are NOT Japanese. If anything, it’s made it even more difficult.

Posted in: U.S. base in Okinawa confirms 32 more coronavirus cases; Iwakuni base reports several See in context

The US military needs to treat where they are with respect, consideration and due intelligence. They have not done this in Okinawa (again) and treat the locals like second class citizens (again) in their own country. The whole approach, the COs, the hierarchy are an absolute disgrace. Utter incompetence, lack of due care and appalling disregard for the health of the local community.

If you don’t wear mask, sanitise your hands, and social distance, you’re a covidiot and need to read up on cognitive dissonance. Shame this publication will not allow me and thousands more of us to truly speak our minds, the are would be on fire. Stay safe. Keep others safe. Don’t be a selfish idiot.
